Esther's Expedition

Esther James was an exceptional individual known for the diversity of her achievements. In the 1930s she became a national celebrity during her sponsored walk of the length of New Zealand to promote local products. On her journey, she had to take a week’s rest in Wellington due to an injury. “Such was the generosity of her overnight hosts - usually prominent farmers or business people - that she claimed to have gained a stone (7kg) in weight during the 2000 km walk. Consuming only New Zealand produce, she most missed cups of tea”.

Tea rooms and milk bars were popular in Wellington streets between 1900-1950 and Esther James could have visited any during her stay in Wellington. t Lounge by Dilmah imagines what would have been on offer if they were around to serve Esther.
